On April 9, 2021, the mask order for the state of Alabama is set to expire. Hartselle City Schools will modify our protocols as follows:
HCS will continue to require masks at indoor events and during the school day until May 25. 2021.
HCS will no longer require that masks be worn by students, faculty, staff, and guests during OUTDOOR events such as spring athletic events.
Sanitization protocols will continue, as well.
Public schools are held to Alabama Department of Public Health protocols regarding infection and quarantine. Should Governor Ivey reinstate a mandate, HCS will comply and modify our practices as needed.
As of April 7, 2021, HCS has one positive case of COVID-19. In alignment with the Alabama Department of Public Health's directives, 9 students and/or staff who had close contact with those infected have been placed under quarantine.
